Broken titanium rods

Started by chloerose91 on 10/04/2014 6:42pm

Early 2009 I had to have a spinal fusion from my T12 and L1 as one of my vertabrae burst after a car accident.
Since then I discovered from an xray 18 months ago one of the bottom rods had snapped, I cannot even pin point when this happened as I didn't feel anything that I can recall, I've just had an xray 2 weeks ago and the second bottom rod as broken, Has anyone experienced this, or had a second surgery to repair this?
I've always had lumps along my spine where the rods stick out which I hate,
Anyone with any similar experience or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
